The great disappearing hot fix

Has anyone experienced anything like this?

Yesterday, one of our users complained to me about some quirk in GP eConnect 
processing that I had thought we fixed in December of 2007 via a Hot Fix to 
eConnect.

Well, when I checked our server it was as if the hot fix was never installed 
(the eConnect release version was the basic 9.0.3.0, instead of 9.0.3.4). The 
Hot Fix was also missing from Add/Remove Programs.

I went to reinstall the hot fix, and when the install program started it 
gave me the option to either Repair or Remove the hot fix. So, something was 
still present that indicated the hot fix had been installed. I tried to 
repair it, but it failed, so I removed it and then reinstalled it.

Very strange (and disturbing)!

Great Plains and RMS
I've upgraded our RMS systems to service pack 3. We now have the option of selecting the GP accounting option. It looks like we have to download an add-on for Great Plains.. Is this true ? The one out there only says for import to GP 7.5 We are currently running GP 8.0. Will it work for this version? Do I even need this add-on, now that you can select the GP accounting option? Scot, KB 893330 discusses integration with GP 8.0, but the links are broken for the download. If my memory is correct, there was talk about a 10/01/05 release date. -- * "Scot S" <ScotS@discussio...

Smartlist builder
Under the Asset Book screen (fixed assets), one can drill into the YTD Depreciation field to see the depreciation amounts that were posted for each period.

Hello, I have a report made in Crystal for purchase orders. I want to open this report when I click on print button from "Purchase Order Entry" window. Any help is welcome. Radu.

MS Great Plains
We have Great Plains (PersonnelOracle Version 2002.03.15 3.0.6. and PowerTool 2002.03.19. 3.1.1.) installed. Previously we have used Office 2000 and the Word merge was working perfectly. Upgrading to 2002 or 2003 the Word merge stopped working, I suppose we need new templates for Word 2003 (.dot files). Who shall we contact with? Any suggestion would be appreciated! Where do Oracle and PowerTool come into the equation? Are you trying to use Word with Microsoft Great Plains? How were you doing it with Word 2000?

I have seven command buttons on a worksheet, all named differently and all running different procedures when clicked. For some strange reason every now and then six of them disappear. I have no idea why, any suggestions please? It may be that your screen isn't wide enough to display them all.

mail actually disappearing
Hello, For a couple of days I've had a weird situation in outlook 2003, whereas there were 2 inbox files in the data file management. Outlook displayed all messages without any problems, but it seems that new incoming messages were being written to the other file, which exists but contains old messages (2004). I've just reinstalled office and the problem was solved, one of the inboxes has been removed from the file management. I have however not been able to find the messages anywhere, in any of the .pst files, It had nothing to do with rules or junk, that all worked fine. I si...

Disappearing Text Box
We created a brochure in Publisher 2003, but when we open it in Publisher 2007, all the text that was in a border box disappeared. The rest of the text and images are still visible, and everything still seems to be lined up. We have lots of documents like this, and are getting ready to go to Office 2007 enterprise wide. Is there a plug in or setting that will help get the missing text back? Have you tried printing it? I suspect the text box is there but not showing up. Try updating your video drivers. Older drivers can cause some really weird glitches in the way a document looks. -- JoA...

Data file disappeared...what now
Last night (money 2003 premium home and business), I closed my money file as normal. However, I had forgotten to enter something, so I went back to open the file again. WHen I did, I got that little searchlight dialog telling me that it couldn't find my money file. The file had just disappeared into the ether. Were I smarter (and appropriately cynical of Microsoft software quality), I would have immediately opened the backup file. However, instead, I went out looking for my Money file. I found one that I hadn't used in a while and - stupid me - I opened it. That file then...

Database Constraint Violated SQL Error for Great Plains 8

The case of the disappearing macro
I'm having difficulty understanding how templates relate to .xls docs. For instance, I created a new doc which very evidently is based on my book.xlt file in the xlstart folder. Yet when I go to File/Properties the template designation is grayed out. Then I record a simple macro. The macro is available via Tools/Macro/Run, but when I want to put it up on a toolbar, it's nowhere to be found under the Customization dialog. I must be missing something basic here. Thanks, p. -- MS Office '03 Excel works differently than word. Once the new workbook is created, there is no connecti...
